Because its not a victory if China gives them the food. If they con America once again it is a victory and that victory helps prop up the dictator. He doesn’t care about the food. Most of it will go to the military or be sold for cash.

On the plus side the military will steal less from the average peon.

Now,we taxpayers not only get to support welfare queens, drug addicts, unions, bankrupt auto companies and solar panel manufacturers, extravagant vacations for the first lady, lavish parties at the white house. Now we also get to finance dictatorships and rogue countries with our tax money.

what is it with the left and their Chamberlain moments.

They just cannot grasp that their failure are that, failures.

They keep trying the same old tired policies and actually think a different results will occur, from Green energy to Iran to this to the Taliban and the left saying the Taliban are not our enemy.

Funny how the MSM will not mention the kidnapped American soldier or the Taliban are trying to kill our troops

“...the United States will provide North Korea with a large food aid package.”

Like Michelle Obama’s lunch order when she & the kids were on the ski vacation last month? Them’z that preach don’t always follow the scripture.

Two things to remember in this latest episode of the long running North Korean craziness:

1.) It was George W. DumbAzz that first started this 'Six Party Talks' crapola. He seemed to think that one of the legs of his vaunted 'Axis of Evil' could be persuaded to 'talk' and give up their nuclear program. We've seen how that worked out.

2.) After all that chest thumping and big talk, GWB actually took North Korea OFF the State Department list of terrorist supporting nations in late 2008, and it should be evident by now just how that appeasement initiative turned out.

The fact is, we just might see some initial mirage-like signs that Pyongyang is 'really' sincere this time, why?

Because the little bastards know that deep down, the 'Dear Reader' is one of THEM:

Perhaps, but what if their new dear leader is actually a GOOD MAN?

Unlikely. IF Kim Jon Un WAS a 'good man', he would already have received the Leon Trotsky treatment by the evil and wicked sons o' bitches surrounding him in that dynastic dictatorship.

They are absolute idiots if they think that the North Koreans will honor one centilla of any agreement they make with us.

They will take our food and other consessions and continue on with their enrichment, reserch and development while making a big show of allowing us to visit their “secret” installations where no R&D or enrichment will be going on.

We simply must remove this administration from office. Not only our economic survival, but our survival in a dangerous world of belligerentss depends on it.

Some FReeper help me out here please. Refresh my memory. What, again, is that definition of stupidity?

I heard the Hildabeaste on the radio raving about this late today. To hear her, you’d think this was the greatest, most amazing diplomatic breakthrough the world has ever seen.

Pa-tooie

We’re gonna give them a bunch of food and they’re gonna continue to hide their nukes. I hear a familiar song playing in the background.

Will the DPRK show inspectors everything? In the 1960s Dimona was inspected by the United States seven times and nothing was found. Why? The Israelis built a fake control rooms and built walls to conceal the plutonium factory.

This is one of those diplomatic ventures that falls under the rubric of possibly much to gain and not much to lose.

We have a new leader in North Korea. Might as well encourage him not to make nuclear weapons. A small price to pay if we gamble and lose, but an enormous win if we keep the North Koreans from further nuclear weapons development.

NOT SO FAST. STOP THE PRESSES. THE JAPANESE PRESS IS REPORTING THE DEAL HAS FALLEN THROUGH, DUE TO DIFFERING INTERPRETATIONS FROM THE NORTH KOREAN DELEGATE SIDE AND THE (DESPERATE FOR AN ELECTION YEAR "VICTORY") US SIDE. NO SOONER HAD THE INK DRIED, THAN THE DIFFERENCE IN DEFINITIONS EMERGE. Breaking, just a few ago on Japanese news here, under analysis section. (They are the least fooled about what a "deal" with North Korea means.

3:00 am phone call ...

0bama: [ring ring ring] "hello?"

Hillary: "Sorry to bother you"

0bama: "oh no problem, I was awake"

Hillary: "worried about this North Korean deal?"

0bama: "no, Michele's finishing off a plate of ribs"

Hillary: "at 3:00 AM?!?"

0bama: "hey, you have your crisis, she's got hers"

Hillary: "omg...well we have a problem"

0bama: "well, ok. 'sup?"

Hillary: "the Japanese media is reporting that the agreement with North Korea is already down the tubes"

0bama: "how many Americans know Japanese?"

Hillary: "hell, I dunno, but probably not very many"

0bama: "so no problem, what your fellow ignorant Americans don't know won't bother them"

Hillary: "is that your answer?"

0bama: "either that or we send Michele to Pyongyang to start wolfing down some of Kim Jong Un's elaborate buffet and salad bars"

Hillary: "oh HELL no, you want to start a war?"

Well stated.

And why is it that the state-run media always trumpets these “breakthroughs” as sound, brilliant foreign policy...when they are obtained under DemocRats, but ridicule them and point out how many times in the past such agreements were broken when they are obtained under Republicans?

Of course, that is a rhetorical question.
